GREENVILLE, S.C. (PRWEB) April 20, 2020
The American Academy of Thermology (AAT), which is the premiere organization in North America for the scientific development, healthcare training and clinical application of scientific medical infrared imaging, has announced the Program for its 2020 Annual Meeting & Scientific Session. It will take place on September 12-13, at the Emory University Conference Center in Atlanta, GA.
This year’s program will have a dedicated session on the implementation of infrared fever detection screening at airports and other facilities. Speakers will include an international panel of experts from countries including the United States, China, and Brazil. For physicians who want to become trained in interpretation of Medical Thermology studies, a Physician's Medical Thermology Interpretation pre-course will be held on Friday, September 11th, also at the Emory University Conference Center.
This is the second year that the AAT will be holding its Annual Meeting & Scientific Session in Atlanta. Last year's meeting was a big success. The Physician’s Medical Thermology Interpretation pre-course and the Scientific Session were well attended and everyone enjoyed the venue. The high marks given prompted the AAT to retain the venue for its 2020 session.
The 2-day event will feature a keynote address, multiple workshops and case studies, and opportunities for networking at a special “Meet and Mingle” reception on the evening of September 12th. Other session topics include neuro-muscuoloskeletal, breast, critical care, and surgical suite applications. In addition, there will be medical residency paper presentations (sponsored by Temple University Hospital) and on Friday, September 11th, there will be a special health and fitness seminar following the completion of the Physician's Interpretation pre-course.
All activities are being planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). Application for CME is pending.
